Graydon Krapohl for Ann Arbor City Council
I am running for City Council to represent Ann Arbor’s 4th Ward because I am passionate about Ann Arbor and want to have an active role in representing the residents of my ward and in shaping Ann Arbor’s future. As we as a city move forward, it will be critical to ensure the decisions made today are proactive and help create the conditions needed to strengthen the city for continued prosperity while preserving the unique character that is Ann Arbor. I have the dedication, commitment and motivation to get us there.
My decision to run for reelection is heartfelt and important to me. I was born in Ann Arbor, raised here as a young child, and graduated from the University of Michigan. I always knew this is where I wanted to return to raise my family. Ann Arbor is an extraordinary city to live and work and I appreciate our wonderful neighborhood, schools, parks, downtown, and above all, the welcoming community that embodies the “Ann Arbor” way of life.
I have always believed that involvement in our local government is essential because the decisions made and actions taken at the local level directly impact the quality of our everyday lives. On council I am pragmatic and an independent voice that looks to build consensus when ever possible. I also recognize that I was elected to make difficult decisions and that sometimes consensus is not always possible. I keep an open mind when considering issues and take into account all viewpoints. With your help, we can continue to make a difference together in shaping the future of our city.
Thank you for taking the time to visiting my website. I look forward to working for you.
